Abstract

In preliminary trials, prawns (Penaeus monodon) grew and survived better with the variety Hawaiian Giant than with the local variety of ipil-ipil (Leucaena leucocephala) as protein source in diet. Prawn postlarvae of initial bodyweight 0.3 to 1.2 g and length 45 to 53 mm were given for 28 days one...

Abstract

Prawn (Penaeus monodon) postlarvae of mean initial bodyweight 15.62 mg were kept at 50 postlarvae to each 200-litre tank in 100 litres sea water with salinity adjusted to 25/1000. They got diet 20% of bodyweight daily for 10 days. One diet was fresh meat of brown mussel (Modiolus metcalfei) with...

Abstract

Grass carp [Ctenopharyngodon idella] were fed on zooplankton until bodyweight 0.4 g; then for 70 days from bodyweight about 14 g [from table] they were fed freely twice a day on diets with fish meal 30, 40 or 50% or soya bean oilmeal 40, 50 or 60%, each with blood meal, starch, oil, minerals and...

Abstract

Fingerling chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) were given for 6 weeks at 7 deg to 8 deg C or at 15 deg one of 10 diets. Protein source was white fish meal alone or with krill meal, or it was casein with gelatin and amino acids; fat source was tallow with different amounts of fish feed oil, or it was...

Abstract

Lobsters (Homarus americanus) initially of the 4th and 5th juvenile stages kept at 15 deg or 20 deg C grew and survived at about the same rate at either temperature. Diets had protein 50% of dry weight and were given freely twice a day for 10 to 12 weeks. With shrimp as the protein source the...

Abstract

Copra, groundnut, soya, sunflower, rapeseed and cottonseed oilmeals and leucaena meal were tested individually in different proportions of the diet and compared with a control diet (30% protein) with fishmeal for male Sarotherodon mossambicus [Tilapia mossambica] in a series of 3 trials. Despite...

Abstract

Duplicate groups of Tilapia nilotica fingerlings were fed on each of 5 diets for 8 weeks. Each diet had 30% crude protein, which was supplied by fish meal and Cladophora glomerata meal in the ratios of protein 30:none, 25:5, 20:10, 15:5 and 10:20% of diet. A 6th diet had 25% of protein, all from C. ...

Abstract

In tank experiments phosphorus (6.5% dicalcium or monocalcium phosphates) was added to 2 diets with fish meal as the main protein source and a algal meal to replace it. Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) grew significantly more than fish given the same diets without the P supplement. In pond experiments ...

Abstract

Fish silage, cooked fish preserved with formic acid and low-temperature-dried fish meal were prepared from whole whiting (Merlangius merlangus) and incorporated into diets suitable for feeding to mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio) fingerlings. The diets contained 33% crude protein on a DM basis of which ...

Abstract

Anaerobically digested piggery waste was used as a substitute protein source at 10% and 20% on an isonitrogenous and (as far as possible) isoenergetic basis, and compared to a control diet of soyabean meal and fish meal for fingerling mirror carp (Cyprinus carpio). The fish fed on the substitute...
